Aggressively Defending Your Rights and Freedom

Lawyer Bryan Smith will carefully review every aspect of your criminal defense case, looking for ways to obtain a dismissal of the charges or a favorable outcome. He pays particular attention to potential defenses based on search and seizure and other constitutional issues. He will also examine the results of the state's testing, weighing and handling procedures, seeking to exclude evidence and undermine the prosecutor's case. If a potentially successful defense strategy exists, our firm will find it.

Bryan Smith will provide you with an honest assessment of your case. Whenever possible, he seeks to obtain a dismissal of charges or an acceptable plea arrangement. If you choose to go to trial, Bryan Smith will aggressively defend you every step of the way.

Alternatives to Conviction and Jail

Many people accused of drug charges in North Carolina are eligible for alternative sentencing programs. A deferred prosecution for example, can enable you to get treatment and avoid jail. Eventually the charge is dismissed, provided you comply with the terms of the program. Other alternative outcomes, such as a 90-96 conditional discharge or drug diversion, are available in certain cases.

Bryan Smith understands the various alternative programs available in the Wilmington area. If you qualify and want this type of outcome, he will work with the court to obtain it for you.

If your case results in a not guilty verdict or a dismissal of the charge, you may be eligible for an expungement. This seals all records relating to your case. Bryan Smith can review your case and if your case qualifies, can seek an expungement for you.
